Date:10/19/2007

Radi Medical Systems Sponsors Case Review with Drs. Morton Kern, Nico

Pijls, Augusto Pichard

UPPSALA, Sweden and WILMINGTON, Mass., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The use of fractional flow reserve (FFR) for optimizing patient outcomes is the topic of several sessions at this year's Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics symposium, TCT 2007, which will take place Oct. 20-25 in Washington.

Radi Medical Systems AB, the first company to develop systems that calculate FFR with the physiologic assessment of targeted lesions, is sponsoring a breakfast session, Nine Cases That Will Change Your Practice: FFR Case Review, at 7 a.m. EDT on Oct. 23 in room No. 152 B in the Washington Convention Center. Morton J. Kern, M.D., of the University of California- Irvine, is the session's moderator, while Nico Pijls, M.D., Ph.D. of Catharina Hospital, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and Augusto Pichard, M.D., of the Washington Hospital Center, are the participating faculty.

In addition to coverage in the case review, FFR and physiologic lesion assessment are the subject of:

-- An extensive workshop at 2 p.m. on Oct. 21 that will focus on the

basics of FFR measurement, the use of FFR in specific settings, and the

practicalities and impact of FFR in the era of drug-eluting stents

(Room 147AB)

-- A session on Oct. 22 during the "Board Review Course with Self

Assessment for Interventional Cardiology and Endovascular Medicine,

PART 3: Coronary Essentials" that will cover IVUS and physiologic

lesion assessment in clinical practice and physiologic lesion

assessment case presentations with an integrated Q&A (Room 146AB)

About FFR

FFR expresses maximum achievable blood flow in a coronary artery with abnormal stenosis as a fraction of normal maximum blood flow in the absence of a stenosis. It is calculated using an interventional guidewire with a specially designed sensor built into it. Using the well established value of 0.75, FFR is 100% specific in identifying which lesions are actually causing flow restriction and can be treated. FFR also documents the exact percentage of the reduction in flow associated with each lesion.
